Report: Kirk Cousins hasn’t asked Washington for a trade

While Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is indeed hoping to get a chance to be a starter, he has not asked the club to be dealt, Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com reported on Sunday evening.

Earlier on Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Cousins was willing to be traded.

Cousins, 25, is entering his third NFL season. He is under contract for affordable base salaries in the next two seasons, and he’s proven capable of being a solid fill-in for Robert Griffin III. However, new Redskins coach Jay Gruden has installed Griffin as the starter, which potentially leaves Cousins’ short-term career in something of a holding pattern.

    Ha!

    What he doesn’t seem to understand is that he destroyed his trade value with his disastrous performance after Griffin went down.

    Had they tried to trade him after last season, there’d have been some idiotic GM out there, dangling a Rob Johnson-style package just because teams are so desperate for quarterbacks.

    But now? He’s been exposed. Fifth-round pick. Maybe.

    RG3 is still unproven, therefore, the Redskins have to keep him at least 2 more seasons…. If I was them I wouldn’t let him go no matter what until 2016. At that point you’ll know what RG3 is really going to be or not, and one of them will leave DC
